Surprise Date

Britney and Bobby went to the store to pick up a few things. They were gone for quite a while, but since it was the day before Valentine's Day, I can imagine how packed it was. In fact, I was later told stories of rudeness and mean people and Brit nearly going off on someone. Ah...the holidays. It brings out the very best in people.

They came home and we watched some TV. Later, I was sitting at the computer, and Bobby walked up to me and told me to go get ready. He said to dress comfortably. When it was time to leave, we all jumped in the car and Bobby handed me a Valentine's card and a DVD. The Time Traveler's Wife! Yeah...I wanted that:) He took us to Karen's house. Hmmm...suspicious. He said he needed to drop something off. And he did...two very wonderful children:) Karen watched the kids so we could go on a date! I had no idea and am quite proud of him for pulling it off.

We went to Logan's, which was PACKED! We sat in the bar area, ordered a beer and talked and laughed. Then a waitress asked us if we wanted the newly available table. FYI-the tables in the bar are first come, first serve. So we were seated pretty quickly considering the crowd. We ordered our food and had a delicious meal while people stared at us in hopes we would leave and they could swoop in and have our table...vultures. Oh, and I also had a peach daiquiri. Delicious.

After we ate, we walked around the mall for a while. Yes, us in the mall. I can't tell you the last time I was there. We looked in some of the stores and even sat in the little booth and got pictures taken. They're kind of cute. They say HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY at the top of each strip.

After the mall, we went to the movies. We decided on Edge of Darkness. I could have made Bobby take me to the biggest chick flick available, but I didn't. I want to see Dear John and When in Rome, but I'll wait. So many of the movies we want to watch, the kids want to see too. We decided that was the best movie. It was very good by the way.

We had a fantastic time and I appreciate Bobby sneaking around so we could have a romantic evening to ourselves. They are so few and far between! Thank you Karen for watching our monkeys:)

I love you Mr. Lackey!


  1. I am not a monkey. Out of the two of us, Cody's really the primate here.

  2. I would watch your monkeys anytime. Yes Brit, you too are a monkey!


  3. Well, then. Do you think my fur smells alright? Oh, wait. There's a bug crawling in it. Crunch. Yum.
